NH state officials urge the public to conserve water

The New Hampshire Drought Management Team released a statement this week asking the public to use water conservatively. Brandon Kernan, team chair, warned, “Overflowing reservoirs, high stream flows, and flood warnings all point towards drought recovery, but many well monitoring stations in the southern part of the state continue to show below normal levels. It is imperative that residents on public water systems and private wells continue to be cautious with their water use as we transition from early spring, a time of peak groundwater recharge, to the growing season, where evaporation and plant uptake results in minimal recharge of groundwater at the same time that peak water use is also occurring.”
